"Oh my poor, dear Fitzie!" Zelda cried when she first saw his injuries after his terrifying battle with the Tomato Eating Squirrel. "You are the bravest and most handsome fruit in the whole garden!" Fitz inwardly smiled as he thought to himself that his eye injury may prove to be of some benefit after all.
I was pleasantly surprised to find nearly 5 pounds of tomatoes still hanging out in the garden, with plenty of green ones too. I had to wade back into the Green Lagoon in order to pick them, since I haven't weeded back there for a good long while. Honestly I'm a little afraid of what Creatures may be lurking out in the weeds! A few frogs, salamanders and bunnies have scared me to death back there.
I found a few more green peppers, jalapenos, and another huge bag of basil, too. Well, I didn't find the BAG, so I guess I should say I filled up another huge bags worth of basil. :) Poor Man's Pesto, here I come again!
Of course, I keep finding deer footprints in the garden. I'd gone out and yelled at this one a couple of times already. (That poor stick of a peach tree better be a fighter, or else its never going to survive!)
Said deer and his cohorts have been given due notice that bow season begins in 12 days.
In a few more Harvest Mondays, you might find a report that we've harvested venison. At least my dear husband really hopes so...he keeps warning them that we'll get our eaten tomatoes one way or another.
What did your garden give you this week?
